a person in america. mr. mcconnell does not see it that way. on the political wire the romney's campaign would have could have should have transition website today. surely, this was not supposed to go live until mr. romney actually won the election. the campaign did not wait. they presumably accidentally put it up, a transition website for president-elect romney, how to apply for a job with the new romney administration. looks like because they screen shot it before they finally did take it down, looks like the romney folks had a transition motto all ready to go, a slogan, repeated slogan on the website is smaller, simpler, smarter. when republican speaker of the house john boehner gave his first post election press conference what he thought should happen in this country given the results of the election almost like he thought he was speaking in the context of president-elect romney and smaller simpler smaller branded transition. >> by working together and creating a fairer simpler cleaner tax code, moving to fairer simpler system energized by a simpler cleaner fairer tax code -- >> sim
. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo since romney and electoral landslide tuesday night. i feel like i have become the chief psychologist for conservatives. voters who were young conservative thinkers, thinkers young conservatives in the 1980s are now wondering whether all is lost ann coulter was on my radio show yesterday. >> if mitt romney cannot win in this economy, then the tipping point has been reached. we have more takers than makers and it's over. the country that no longer is interested in conservative ideas. it is interested in handouts. >> >> laura: this frustration and dejection is understandable. i, like many conservatives, thought mitt romney would pull out a victory, i, like many republicans, am extremely disappointed. the autopsy of what went wrong is ongoing. there will be conflicting opinions on the cause of death for the romney campaign and all those senate races. i happen to think that mitt romney ran an overly cautious and defensive campaign which allowed the other side to define him. perhaps with the exception being that first debate. some establishment rep
) of course, on the other side, governor mitt romney broke the bad news to his supporters before reluctantly being asked to pose for his family's yearly christmas card. ( laughter ). that is a good-looking bunch. it's like they-- the people that came in the frames. across the nation, the people spoke, legalizing gay marriage in maine and maryland. legalizing marijuana in washington state, and colorado-- ( cheers and applause ) gay marriage... nothing. ( laughter ). marijuana... bat ( bleep ) crazy. they also legal ides dancing in that town in "footloose." i probably should have looked that up. wisconsin elected tammy baldwin the first openly lesbian senator. sorry, lindsay graham. yeah. you missed the lindsay graham joke. it was a pretty good one. ( laughter ). perhaps the best news was in florida. after months of republican governor rick scott attempting to suppress democratic voter turnout, and attempting to decrease voter discomfort and my favorite introducing a 10-page novelette state ballot to people who couldn't handle a ( bleep ) one-page ballot. florida remains too close to call. wha
to the right mitt romney had to go to mail tell that nomination. one of the things people will say -- nail down that nomination. people say, what impact did the superpacs have tumbled -- have? had adelson not kick in the money for newt gingrich, he would have been out of the race a long time ago. if not for foster freeze, rick santorum would have been out of there. romney had to move to the right to nail down the nomination. it made it more difficult, more awkward for him to go back toward the center to win a general election. if you are going to say two issues -- one of them might not be fair. the automobile bailout, i do not know how much of that was political and conservatives not liking government interference and how much of it was a harvard business school, harvard law our school -- harvard law school thinking that that would have been a better long-term route for the auto companies that may not have been political, that you them go bankrupt. the other thing is the politicization. you cannot tell me that the mitt romney from 3 or four years ago would have had any intention to go as stride
governor called the man he supported, mitt romney, to offer some support as well he said no he just sent romney a conciliatory email, but called president obama. >> bill: that's unreal. >> the samsung galaxy overtook apples iphone. shipped 18 million units compared to iphone's 16. but that will not hold since the iphone 5 went on sale in the fourth quarter. >> bill: yeah i was going to say that's not -- >> i think that will change. >> absolutely. hey, one leftover election item wanted to get into here at the top of our show and then look forward with president obama and find out from you, real question to you here in our first hour together this morning. okay. so president won reelection right? now what does he do? what should he be fighting for? and will he show more fight on some issues in the second term now that he doesn't have to run for reelection than he did in his first term? good question. i just got to say, karl rove has got to be the biggest horse's ass ever in american politics. if there is anybody that comes across as the big loser of this election sea
the election, you have to be moderate center. romney tried to be moderate center. it was too late. they have to appeal to the latino voter. thougthe latino voter will be te majority american in 2020. that is eight years away. you have to make a better appeal to them. they may have just misbegun. they have to reevaluate were there. i do not know what the answer is. the tea party held a press conference today. they blamed it on romney. they said we have -- that was the leap to establish the candidate. i do not know how they are blaming him. he won the primaries and they paid the price. tavis: there is a much talked -- so much talk. this is the guy that they did not want. they tried to pull everybody and his mama out of the ether to run for this and what it chris christie, jenna bush, -- jeb bush and the governor of texas. >> who is they? tavis: the republicans. >> when kennedy won the democratic nomination, there were only seven primaries. seven. that was called the back room. in the back room days, i am not sure that was not better. the league, the people got together and said this is our guy
a president who is ready to stand his ground for jobs, for growth, but not the bush/romney way, no more trickle down now that the people of this country have sent their message from the gound up. armed for combat, barack obama takes the felt against the very forces who fought to cut him down. he will be a democratic president. he will be fair on tacks. he will use those taxes to rebuild this country and educate it up to the tough competition we face in the 21st century. he's backed by a majority of the american people, indeed re-elects as the only democrat with the civil war with two majority elections behind him with an undergraded mandate at his back. today he marched on to the field of combat against an uncertain foe. some ready to deal, others hiding in their bunkers waiting for something, anything, to save them from the terrifying sight of 25 2 1st century electoral reality. i'm joined by dee dee myers, former clinton white house press secretary and david corn, the author of the ebook, 47 percent. today the president stressed he's willing to compromise to avoid the consequence of g

[ laughter ] ♪ nah, nah, nah, nah, nah ♪ >> stephanie: our deepest sympathy. >> oh, by the way we won florida too. ♪ nah, nah, nah, nah ♪ >> ann romney: stop it. >> stephanie: do you think she can hear that?

for barack obama in this election than the last election, and mitt romney did not beat john mccain's totals in this election. both of those numbers are absolutely extraordinary. it says a lot about the romney campaign and its inability to excite its own base and get people out to vote for its own side. i don't disagree -- >> wasn't anger enough? >> it certainly -- i think it was disgust with both sides. i think there were a large portion of voters who decided they weren't going to vote for obama and they didn't feel comfortable with romney for a variety of reasons. i agree with the basic premise that going forward in the future we need to be more culturally diverse as a party. we need to go after different segments of the population because obviously the country is changing, and we all get that. in this particular election, there was another story being told. barack obama was there for the taking. we could have beat him. we just had to have john mccain numbers, and we didn't have it. >> who was your candidate that would have done better than romney? >> jeb bush. >> jeb bush. interesting. yo
. therein lies the $regardless of what romney said about the 47%ers, there is another one right there. the 48% of the households that don't pay taxes. guess what happens when it's 50% or 51%? democrats will, or the people who give, take and give will be voted out. >> bob: what does it do with 48%? nothing. >> eric: what are you talking about? >> bob: that is result of the tax reform bill that bush did. he cut taxes across the board and cut taxes down to nothing on people making you were certain amount of money. >> eric: bob, the poverty levels and the tax rates have changed. they have moved. president obama as of december 31 wants to move them again. >> bob: he has not moved a single income tax bracket, obama. >> eric: he wants to. the only reason he hasn't, he couldn't. we were going, going to blow the debt ceiling apart and made a deal to not change the tax rates because they never said -- >> andrea: his own party wouldn't support it. >> eric: right. >> bob: wouldn't support what? >> andrea: tax increases. >> dana: so in 2010, when the republicans won all the seats, in the lame duck
should say that yesterday mitt romney did can see florida. we do know obama well when those 29 votes. that gives him a total of 332 electoral votes. host: thank you for joining us. always informative. we are taking your calls this morning on what issues he wanted the president to address in his second term perry will go to the phones. sheila is on the democratic line from alabama. caller: good morning. i would like to see the economy get better. the second issue i have a problem with is the education system. those are the two things i would like to see get better. also, if i could i would like to make a comment. the people over at fox news and this glen beck character, i was looking at those people yesterday. they were doing a lot of name- calling yesterday. they said that the people who voted for obama were a bunch of idiots. i would just like to say that they are doing a lot of wining now. host: let's stick to looking forward for the next four years. how confident are you on the issues you brought up that the president will be able to get some traction? caller: i think it is going
in to clarify the situation. as for governor romney, he may have lost the election but victory will always be spelled m.i.t. on the "ridiculist." that does it for us. see you again one hour from now. another edition of "360" 10:00 p.m. eastern. "piers morgan tonight" starts right now. >>> good evening. looking live at the white house tonight. we've got breaking news on the president tonight. i'm going to show you one of the most extraordinary pieces of video i think i have ever seen of any political leader. it was shown yesterday at obama campaign headquarters in chicago just hours after barack obama's re-elected. it shows the leader of the free world as i have never seen him, you probably haven't seen him either. raw, exhausted and reduced to open tears by the efforts of his young campaign workers. and by the thought of what he himself has accomplished. it's one of those things you've got to watch in its entirety. here it is, arguably barack obama's finest ever speech. >> i try to picture myself when i was your age and i first moved to chicago at the age of 25, and i had this vague inklin
romney for a hard-fought campaign. they were hard-working americans who wanted to make the country better and use the political process to do that. we wish them sleep and some time with family. i want to congratulate all the volunteers for what they did on election day. we had over 109,000 people canvassing on doors, double that on the phones, and they executed a historic ground game. the reason they were motivated to do this it was not because of any analytical tools or tech product that we gave them. they were working to build this campaign because they believe in barack obama and his message and the policy he moved forward -- to move this country forward. that is what won in this election. across battleground states, we are currently sitting at 50.4. i think we will get a little better than president bush's margin in the 2004 election. our margin over republicans declined about 3.7% compared to 2008. 5.3 in non battleground states. millions of ballots are still being counted, 4 million in california alone. sometime today we think we will be officially the winner in florida. as of right

romney, for the most part reserved his criticism to matters of policy, the attacks from the left were personal and relentless. let's take a look at the hate-filled rhetoric that fueled the re-election obama machine. >> i do want think mitt romney realizes what he has done to anyone. furthermore, i do not think that mitt romney is concerned. >> i don't know the facts of when joe's wife got sick or died. but i do know the facts of what mitt romney did with g.s. steel. >> i think thehe republican party and mitt romney has clearly been and could be brepted as an attack on the issues that matter to women. >> this is a guy who thinks corporations are people and straps the family dog to the roof of his car. >> he is speaking to their friends out there who do not want to see anybody other than a white person in a leadership position. >> the word's out that he hasn't paid any taxes for 10 years. let him prove that he has paid tax because he hasn't. >> this is the e. coli club. >> going to put you back in chains. >> sean: this was an important race and a full-contact sport. so is football. what

of the campaign. increased revenue but no increased marginal rates. that seems to buy into what mitt romney had been trying to persuade us. there is a way you can rejiggle the tax code to give you the revenue but nobody's rates would go up which would be nice but does it make sense to you since they adamantly refuse to close the loopholes that are the only route to doing that? >> no. and even if they were to come up, somewhere down the road with some loophole closers some deduction limits, that is still mathematically not going to do it. there's no way you can actually, again, get the deficit under control when we want to get the deficit under control. there's no way you can do that with limits on deductions and loopholes. there does have to be an increase in the marginal rate on the very rich. that's something republicans don't want to admit. what they are counting on is this whole supply-side mythology that if you simply keep taxes low on the rich, the economy grows faster and that growth almost by magic in fact, it is magic c
've been living in for the last couple years, where obama's a terrible president, romney's going to win in a landslide and they're going to impose the republican agenda. what i write in the cover story if you look at how things have changed on the outside looks like the status quo, same president, same senate, same house but all the leverage has shifted to obama because what the democrats really want and need is revenue and now they don't need republicans to get revenue. they can just let the bush tax cuts expire, go over the fiscal cliff and have all the revenue they need whether or not john boehner and his caucus want to participate. >> jeff, i always say that i think the speaker has one of the hardest jobs in washington and i think it's -- that's in evidence now more than ever. i think the question is, if he does end of striking a grand bargain with the white house, does he hold on to his speakership. >> that's a great question. he has a very, very difficult job and the truth is, both he and the president need each other. both men need compromise. both men men want the fiscal cliff n
for the losing campaign. it is clear the romney campaign was prepared for a victory election night. sources say the moment romney himself said "it is not going to happen," while his wife ann cried by his side that night the campaign victory celebration fireworks in boston harbor had to be taken down. somehow this ended up on the web, the romney feature, how to join the romney administration that of course, was not to be. >>> by now, most of us know the phrase jumping the shark to mean the moment something goes from relevant to passe, to overdone, bob brunner wrote the episode of the tv series "happy days," in which fonzi jumped over a shark while on water skis, the show lasted five more years, after the show that immortalized irrelevant as a phrase. he made laverne and shirley, and the odd couple. he was 78 years old. >>> up next, a lot of people getting a well-deserved vacation without ever leaving home. r >>> finally tonight, for millions of americans, the folks who live in those battleground states, it is as though a huge burden has been lifted now that the election is over. suddenly what s

(laughter) i mean-- wheers plaus it could slow him down. i mean he already lost the election that can't help. but of course florida is still being counted. so folks i got to till, i am still hanging in there and i'm checking for updates on the campaign's i'm with mitt app. okay. it still works. and it lets you take photos with little messages that show your support for mitt romney. i tweeted this one today. (laughter) i'm with mitt. then later i tweeted i'm stand being mitt. and eventually i'm in the fetal position with mitt. but ultimately, folks this election only matters so much. real change comes from private citizens making a difference in their local communities. the woman who runs the soup kitchen. teens who clean up a vacant lot. the guy who fishes golf balls out of the pond and sells them back to you at half price. thank you for your service. and every so often we celebrate those heroes on my show. and in a segment we call difference makers.

.a. >> we have to look at politics. this network is trying to explain why he predicted a romney landslide, and a lot of other conservatives are trying to blame in all on romney. it reminds me of what we democrats winter after 1972. the late and beloved note george mcgovern no longer with us was blamed for the landslide a 72. we lost 80, 84, in '88 and they're still blaming the candid it's. it was not the candid, and it was not the way he communicated. it was the message. it was -- it took bill clinton to redo the map and barack obamacare continued that legacy. the reason why the hispanic vote went for broke, is because bit romney made him look liberal on immigration policy. did not follow george bush's policies and innovation, or you might have been president. it is about content, not the communication. lou: is not one to answer my question on the racial divide. i will try with you. >> well, i think the numbers speak for themselves. the fact that the electorate this time, the change in the percentages among white voters. if the romney campaign got al, the percentages they thought they nee
